Hey guys, It's seriously been a while since I've posted on these forums :(
I have a 1996 Civic LX now. It has a D16y7 in it currently. I'm getting my hands on a Z6 head this weekend as well as a complete 14b Turbo kit. I was wondering what you guys think/would think. If I boosted the Mini me? Would it be safe if I use ARP headstuds and an upgraded headgasket and got it tuned immediatley? Let me know some input!

yeah you should be fine if you boost it. I would just drive it with the mini-me for a few days just to make sure everything is running good and get any little problems worked out. But after you make sure everything is running good i would go ahead and boost it.

You might have some problems with the head studs with the mini me though. i think there is one stud for that will be to long or short.

Matts a beast when it comes to tuning.

Matt is the man, but he is a very busy man so i had to have dyno inc do it. that and i didn't want to drive to richmond on a very bad base tune.
I know he's very well busy! If I can't get in with him, then I will go else where. It may be Dyno Inc that I would visit, but I'm not 100% sure yet. I heard Ross at Precision does multiple Dyno runs, without letting vehicle cool or anything.

dyno inc just did me up a new downpipe today (err well yesterday). i will be down there again this next saterday for my "high" boost retune (20*, currently @ 8*), i don't think they will mind if you watch them tune my hunk o' sh!t.
Haha, I will have to stop by one day. Are they open on Sundays?

I already have a front mount intercooler. I'm ordering the obd-2a-obd1 conversion harness and distributor harness tonight. I have a P07, I was going to chip that because I was going to do the mini me.
